Tutorial: Hall Effect

Moving Charges experience forces in the presence of applied electric and magnetic fields. One interesting consequence of these forces is the Hall Effect. Hall Effect is the process leading to the development of a voltage across one of the faces of a semiconductor slab when a crossed electric field and magnetic field is applied across the other two pairs of faces of the slab.

Hall Effect can be used to distinguish between n-type and p-type semiconductors, measure majority carrier concentration and majority carrier mobility. This effect can also be used to develop a magnetic pro for circuit application.

Hall Effect is considered essentially because to discover the Hall Voltage (VH) and Hall Co-efficient (RH). To get the mathematical analysis a methodical derivation is revealed in the figures below:
